Security for new windows
Just had one window put in upstairs - a Veka. I noticed the locking system is different to the existing older windows. It is a 2 point espagnolette. Searching on the Internet and Youtube there are demonstrations which show there are superior locking systems - Shootbolt, Roto TSl, Kenrck Easi-fit.
Now I am looking to replace some windows downstairs I have to think about security.
Can Roto and Kenrick be fitted to Rehau or Veka windows?
For a downstairs windows some of which have been previously jemmeyed, which locking systems do you guys prefer - shootbolt, roto etc- and what are the pros and cons? Thx
insist on shootbolts and insist that the sashes are steel reinforced

Shoot bolts can be put on rehau, I would advise you to insist on these especially for downstairs
